Use something other than logrotate?
This is a utility that comes with Apache. To use it, you need to
modify your apache config to change the logging directives.
Instead of (eg.)
CustomLog "/var/log/httpd-access.log" common
CustomLog "|/usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs \
/var/log/httpd-access.log 86400" common
which will generate a new log file every day at midnight,
labelled by the date as the standard seconds-since-the-epoch
unit time. (Other time formats can be applied)
* cronolog -- in ports as sysutils/cronolog
This is rotatelogs on steroids -- it lets you use strftime(3)
format codes to build the path and/or filename the logfile is
saved as, so you could have a scheme giving paths like:
[One advantage of rotatelogs or cronolog for busy sites -- you
get log file rotation without any requirement to restart apache
at all. One disadvantage: neither of these programs *delete*
over-aged log files. You'll need to write a very small cron job to
do that bit.]
* newsyslog -- part of the base system.
You can use wildcards to match a range of different file names.
If you rotate the logs based on age or size, it /should/ only do
one cycle per invocation. (Not tested -- so may be completely
bogus). Something like:
/home/*/logs/access_log 644 14 * 24 GJ /var/run/httpd.pid 30
added to /etc/newsyslog.conf should get you log files rotated once
every 24h with two weeks worth kept on hand.
Otherwise, you could rearrange your directory structure to give you a
unique path distinguishable by globbing. So, instead of having:
/home/domain1.com as the real directory
domain1.net -> domain1.com
domain1.org -> domain1.com
Make the directory be:
and create symlinks:
domain1.com -> _domain1
domain1.net -> _domain1
domain1.org -> _domain1
Then you can wildcard as '/home/_*/logs/access_log' [Note '_' was chosen
because that character is specifically disallowed in host / domain
names: it's guaranteed not to accidentally collide]
